2023 IEP Program
Mars Foods Corporate Accelerator
We aim to make a wide ranging, far reaching and long lasting global impact on agrifood systems
In 2019, Mars Food Australia ran the Seeds of Change Accelerator Program in partnership with Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL) and Food Futures Company.
Six start-ups were chosen for an intensive four months from more than 224 applicants: Spiralz Fermented Foods; The Australian Superfood Co; Edible Bug Shop; Human Connection Project: Fable; and Grounded.
The intensive program included mentoring, market analysis, branding work, product and strategy development and financial investment of $40,000 in their businesses. Its goal was to fast-track the start-ups’ growth, help build skills to develop innovative products and access new markets.
